John King and Wolf Blitzer, Football Rivals, Swap Jerseys

By Mark Joyella 

John King struck first, but it was Wolf Blitzer who had the last laugh.

The two CNN anchors clashed last week when their respective NFL teams, Blitzer’s Buffalo Bills and King’s New England Patriots, met on Sunday afternoon in Foxboro. Ahead of the game, King taunted Blitzer with a Patriots jersey customized with Blitzer’s name on the back.

And then the Bills crushed the Patriots, 16-0. Today, Blitzer returned the favor, giving King his own Bills jersey to remember the game–complete with “King” and number 1 on the back.


Both vowed never to wear their gift jerseys.
